Turtlenecked – “Meeting You In The Hospital”

Harrison Smith has been releasing anxious art-rock as Turtlenecked at a frantic pace a couple years now. Last August, he put out his first official full-length, Pure Plush Bone Cage, and quickly followed that up with demo collection Caveat and “Boys Club,” an angry song that was released a few days after the election and serves as the opening track of Turtlenecked’s forthcoming album, Vulture, which is being officially announced today alongside a new song, “Meeting You In The Hospital.” It’s a sweet-sounding song about love with a sardonic center as Smith picks apart the vagaries of modern romance with a cynical wit: “I’d rather be cliché than a liar,” he sings, admitting vulnerably later on: “I don’t wanna die alone or mean.” Listen below.
